The German Navy did not respond to requests to participate in the Arsenal. From previous interviews with Admiral Dernitz, The Kreigsmarine believes there is no need to dilute the value of their ships with this alternative marketplace.

As popular as they are, Germany did not have a large navy. They were only larger in comparison to Russia, and dwarfed by literally anyone else involved in the war's naval activities.

 

This means fewer options for premiums, and therefore fewer options for Arsenal ships.

Germany actually has a pretty small number of premium vessels in the game currently, and none that WG want to give away for “free” at the moment. Honestly though, now that T-61 is here, I hope that they rotate Z39 into the Arsenal.

I suspect the first German candidate will be the Emden.

Cool, but we have even less French ships and premiums, and Agile is right there.

When is WG's Gamescom announcement this year? They rushed a German ship to market last year for the event (since it's hosted in Germany).

Outside of paper ships. And we know how people feel about that (generally).

Yeah, you’re probably spot on with that.

I guess they can take solace in having T-61 recently released.

With Prinz Eitel to come Germany will shortly have a total of 10 premiums, while the UK will get it's 7th with Cossack, and well... France is at just 4 but with 3 pending release.

Yet they had more losses than any other Navy. You're forgetting the focus of Germany was a type that will never be in game.

SUBS

You said they didn't have a large Navy. Are subs part of the Coast Guard? Merchant Fleet? Or the Navy? Germany had a huge Submarine force all were apart of the NAVY last time I checked.

Let's not even get into all the ships of the WWI era KM fleet that are currently not in game.

I thought subs were boats?

”As a sailor in boats, ships and submarines, this is what I've been told: it is a historical convention that goes back to definitions: ships carry boats; that is to say, a sea-going vessel that can be carried, launched, and/or tended by another sea-going vessel is a 'boat', and a ship cannot be carried by another ship; since it is a historical holdover, it reflects the time it came to be, when submarines were actually boats.”

No, only Stalingrad.

T-61 doesn't qualify?

I don't know about an announcement, but in case you missed it there has been a code tossed around to win Gamescom camo patterns and a Challenge to play 5 games per day with a German ship to get 50% more XP for each battle, as well as a credit discount on the ships of the German line.
